NaPoWriMo Nina’s Challenge #Day 1


Everyday throughout April I am posting an image for you to use as a writing prompt. Feel free to post links to the resulting work in the comments.

Please be aware by sharing your work digitally, it is considered published and may prevent you from submitting it to journals and anthologies.

NaPoWriMo 2019


Due to health, I have not been actively blogging since October and although there is lots of improvement, I am not fully back to superhero condition, in fact it has been so long WordPress have changed the colours of the buttons and the way posts are edited.

It is April the 1st and that means the start of this year’s NaPoWriMo.  Now called GloPoWriMo – as it is GLOBAL, I can’t get used to that so still refer to it as NaPoWriMo.

So here we go, 30 posts at least this month. 

In the past I have brought you prompts from sites other than the official one, such as The Poetry School. This year I will just be following the official prompts. Last year I did 3 and ended up writing 99 poems! About 5 were decent and the 3 I submitted were published… so I believe it is a worthwhile exercise.

Due to publishing restrictions I tend to only post a line or so of the poems I create, but will share the prompts/ poems/ articles from the official site and others I may find along the way, as well as posting some tips along the way.

Let’s step into Day 1.
